Issue 79: Improve usability by displaying key mappings

Reported by Shuning Bian, Jun 18, 2010

Firstly, gmenu2x is an excellent start for having a user-friendly 
Ben. However due to it's origins, gmenu2x works with game controller 
keys, e.g. A, B, start, select, etc. It necessary needs to map keys 
on the ben's qwerty kb to game controller keys.

The problem is these mappings are not obvious, and as far as I can 
tell, not discoverable in anyway using the application itself, other 
than by randomly pressing keys and seeing what happens.

A splash tutorial of some description would help here. Otherwise 
gmenu2x is a hinderance to new and experienced users alike: new 
users will be frustrated by the inability to launch programs using 
"enter" (since it maps to start), and experienced users 
will be frustrated at the inability to get their command line back 
:P

Cheers,
Steve
